About this product
- DescriptionIn the Arab countries, climate change is a risk to poverty reduction and ecomic growth, threatening to unravel many of the development gains that have been achieved. The Arab Region is already suffering adverse consequences from climate variability and change. This book provides information on climate change and its impact in the Arab Region, as well as technical guidance on climate adaptation options for policy makers. The areas addressed include the ecomic impacts of climate change (as measured by the reduction in household income and GDP); the impacts of climate change on the water, health, and tourism sectors; livelihoods and well-being in rural and urban areas; biodiversity; disaster risk management; as well as gender and other social relations. The report is written through a participatory and collaborative process, led by the World Bank in partnership with the League of Arab States, incorporating both regional and international experts on the topics.|This yearbook contains the most comprehensive update on the current situation of indigeus peoples and the human rights and other international processes related to indigeus peoples. With contributions from both indigeus as well as n-indigeus scholars and activists, The Indigeus World gives an overview of crucial developments in 2004 that have impacted indigeus peoples of the world. It includes region and country reports covering most of the indigeus world and updated information on the processes within the UN system that relate to indigeus peoples such as: The Permanent Forum, The Draft Declaration on the Rights of the Indigeus Peoples, and The Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Indigeus Peoples. It also brings updated information on other international processes including news from the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights and the Organization of American States. Diana Vinding is an anthropologist and project coordinator at The International Work Group for Indigeus Affairs.
